A craft near and dear to my heart, I specialize in naturally textured hair, its characteristics, needs, customized cuts and transformative services.

In the attempt to normalize curly hair, I travel globally with DevaCurl, educating stylists and consumers on the bigger picture-- how to embrace their texture and in turn, accepting and understanding a big part of themselves.  It's more than just hair... it's how we see ourselves in the mirror, our culture and individuality.  Join me in empowering others and bringing life back to basics through natural hair.

I saw Michelle about 2months ago. I have always wanted my hair cut by a deva curl specialist. I was sooo excited when I found her. Both me and my 3yr old daughter have curly hair. Curly hair can be challenging so it was awesome learning new rid bits about my hair and how to manage it. Michelle was great with my 3yr old! So patient and and gentle. I highly recommend Michelle. Its soo comforting knowing she gets me and my struggles w my hair :)

I have struggled with my hair my whole life, not only to 'tame' it but also to accept it. Michelle helped me to understand and work with my hair instead of against it with her cuts for curly hair, styling tips, and overall knowledge, but she also to love and accept my hair as a unique part of myself. My hair has never felt healthier or received more compliments!

You did such a fabulous job the last time that I am able to wait, minus hair anxiety, until this crisis is over to come back! I will reschedule my appointment when we all feel safer. Take care, be safe. Fondly, Janice Martinez
